Question about Toshiba TheaterWide 52HM84 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Still can't get into the convergence mennu

I have a Toshiba 52HM84 that I need to adjust the convergenc on but  cannot seem to access the convergence menu. I can get to all the other areas, can get the screen to go totally red,blue,green, and white, but cannot find the convergence section? I do not have the original remote but rather a miracle reploacement which seems to work fine except for not being able to find the convergence grid?

Ajusting didnt convergenced in the corner of mitsubihi tv


Have worked on a lot of these sets. A number of possible reasons:

1. Slightly damaged convergence IC.
2. Someone has in the Tech menu tampered with the green which affects corners and geometry of the picture---not easy to correct in most cases and usually is bottom corners but can be top.
3. A problem in the Digital convergence block which includes caps and or the 3 chips for memory.
4. If only a single color will not adjust there(look at green first to see if grid of lines are straight---red and blue are adjusted to green and if green off may not be able to line up with it.
5. If large sub woofer near it on side affected move it away---if its been there a while may be magnetized -=--rare.

What I would do is go into Tech menu or customer menu and call of the grid of lines (advanced in that menu) and carefully look at the area affected.

If one whole side will not adjust--chip bad most likely= if just a corner geometry off.

A lot (almost all) were adjusted for Geometry with a special unit at the factory and it can be nearly impossible to correct even in the Tech menu which can be accessed with a 4 number code and the original remote---advantage there is it SAVES adjustments to memory of the set for this.

Number code a specific one for each model group.

If need the numbers for yours confirm model number as I have a list of them available.

I finish by saying if need more help or have a better description let me know.

This is called vertical pincushion IMHO.

With a bit of luck you should be able to adjust this from the service menu.

 

Access the service mode: set SLEEP TIMER to 0 MIN.
While this is still displayed, simultaneously push DISPLAY and
VIDEO STATUS.

We have a theater-wide toshiba projection tv. It is about 7 or 8 years old. When we turned it on, the colors are shadowed in white, blue and yellow. We ran touch/focus and it said error. Please advise.


Your convergence has failed and needs to be repaired. Once quick test is to goto your convergence menu and see if you can adjust red and blue. If not its has failed and needs to be fixed. You can call in a repair shop or you can get the parts and instructions from www.TvRepairKits.com and do the repair yourself. Its a fairly easy DIY fix.

The colors are all separated - red, blue and green bands surround all objects


Hi ,
If the symptom didn't cure by convergence adjustment through the remote control, this is an indication of faulty convergence board inside. You may replace the convergence IC's and some of the resistor around because its already gone bad. You may also replace the entire convergence board for your convenient. If the board replaced with new one, your unit will back to normal again. Also, consider bad solder joints in that area, it will do the same symptom like what you've encountered right now. Find it first and re-solder. If you don't have necessary tools and test instrument and can't do the job yourself, I would advise you to look for a qualified technician to isolate the problem.

Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

Do lamps have adjustment? I have a yellow and blue rainbow effect along bottom of screen. I am pretty handy and well equipped.


This would be a convergence adjustment. Check your user menu on the tv. Look for an item under video settings for a something called "Converge" or "Convergence". See if you can adjust it enough to fix the problem. If not, you may need to access the service menu and adjust from there.

I have a Toshiba 52HM84 and the picture has gotten really wavy, what can I do?


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms
  • Screen Looks 3-D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted or warped
  • No Audio/Video - makes a chirping sound.
Problem #2

Another common problem is dull or washed out video.
Your TV2_bing.gif may have one or more of the following symptoms....
  • Dull looking picture
  • White looking picture
  • Halos around objects
  • Red/Orange looking picture

You need to take the Toshiba remote that came with the machine and go into a menu area that deals with convergence. Here's what the manual says:

This TV used 3 separate TV tubes, red, green, and blue. The R, G, and B images are pojected onto the screen wheree they converge to form a full-color picture. You can see a clear picture only when the three images converge correctly. Corvergence my drift over time, or if yo move the TV. I you can see clear images on your TV screen skip this procedure.

Make this adjustment only after the TV as been on for at least 30 minutes.

Press the TOUCH FOCUS (auto convergence) button on the front of the TV at the bottom.
The TV will enter into the convergence mode and adjust the converge automatically (that's what it says.)

TO ADJUST IT MANUALLY:

Press MENU, and the press < or > until the PICTURE menu appears.
Then press UP or DOWN to highlight CONVERGENCE.
Press < or > to display the Center Convergence menu

There's a lot more the book says, but, I can say from experience that you just go through the different sub areas of this menu and converge each color separately, and bingo, it's fixed.

Good luck.
